Subject: note on the text
Pages i - viii are missing from the original/physical text, so these are not included in the scanned version.

Subject: Wonderful copy
This is the influential 1831 edition which most people know the story by (there were two previous versions, substantially shorter). It is notable that an actual picture of "the creature" is depicted on the inside cover because the description in the text is vague. Shelly of course was alive when this edition was published although it is unclear if she had any influence on the creatures portrait for this edtion. It is certainly much different, more human, than the 20th C Boris Karloff creature. This copy appears to be in excellent condition and was carefully scanned (unlike some other scanning projects!). Thanks Internet Archive!
